SoundHound And Hyundai Motor Group Partner To Embed Music Search And Discovery Into Select 2014 Hyundai & Kia Models

Bookmark and Share

SoundHound Inc., the revolutionary sound search company, announced a partnership with the Hyundai Motor Group, South Korea's leading automobile manufacturing group, to embed the SoundHound music and sound recognition application directly into select Hyundai & Kia vehicles.

"We are excited to join with Hyundai Motor Group to more fully integrate the SoundHound experience into the automobile and make it as easy as possible for drivers to identify and capture those discoveries. This is a natural next step in the convergence of music and the connected car."

This coming spring, drivers of these vehicles will be able to identify songs and access SoundHound features directly through their vehicle's head unit without having to pull out their mobile phones. The feature will initially be available in Hyundai and Kia vehicles in North America, South Korea and China. Hyundai vehicle models integrated with SoundHound will include the all-new 2015 Genesis.

"The car is a natural SoundHound environment, ripe for music search and discovery," said Amir Arbabi, VP Business Development, SoundHound. "We are excited to join with Hyundai Motor Group to more fully integrate the SoundHound experience into the automobile and make it as easy as possible for drivers to identify and capture those discoveries. This is a natural next step in the convergence of music and the connected car."

"Hyundai and Kia are at the forefront of the convergence of technology, music and the automobile," said Dr. Woo-Young Kwak, Head of Vehicle IT Development Center at Hyundai Motor Group. "Through our partnership with SoundHound, we are able to further deepen that commitment to the connected car by integrating one of the most popular mobile music experiences that has been enjoyed by more than 185 million people worldwide."

SoundHound has developed a unique feature set designed specifically for car integration. The SoundHound icon will be seen within the Hyundai/Kia touch screen-enabled head unit and sound recognition can be activated with one touch. The results screen will provide users with information about the song, artist and recommendations based on the song result. The app will track historical searches as well and, once registered, users will ultimately see their search histories across any device where SoundHound can be accessed.
